Three-Rabbi Lecture

On this seventh day of the month of November in the Common Era, the Madrasati-l-Nazariyyatu-l-Hartaqa (The School of Heretical Theory) will be blessed with the ghostly presence of three dead Jewish teachers of noble heresies.

  1. Sigmund Freud, Victorian Ashkenazi doctor of the soul, will be speaking of the significance of dreams, particularly dreaming of killing Fathers and marrying Mothers.
  2. Karl Marx, Victorian Ashkenazi scribe of the market, will be speaking of History as the universal story of class struggle, ideology in popular culture and entertainment, and, of course, the joy of religion as opiate.
  3. Jacques Derrida (aka Rabbi Ben Rida?), 20th-century Sephardi teacher of the text will, of course, be speaking of the text as universe.

The presence of these eminent teachers will be facilitated by the medium Dr. Tom Byers of the University of Louisville, Director of the Center for Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society.

The lecture will begin at 8:50 a.m. Western Indonesian Time (WIB), and will take place on the 2nd Floor of Building D of the Faculty of Arts at Universitas Padjadjaran, Jatinangor.
